For Bunita Marcus, Morton Feldman
Pianist John Tilbury is acclaimed not only as an unequalled interpreter of contemporary composers, but for his work as a free improviser. He is particularly known for his many seminal recordings and performances of the work of Morton Feldman, John Cage, Christian Wolff, and Howard Skempton, and as an improviser for his work with The Scratch Orchestra with Cornelius Cardew and the legendary group AMM.
This concert will feature one of Morton Feldman’s most recorded pieces, For Bunita Marcus, written two years before his death. The piece is typical of Feldman’s late work with its intricate webs of repeating displaced motives, stasis and hanging harmonies.
